Political chatter from DC and NYC, the amNewYork way
Sounds for nominee Sonia Sotomayor
Bronx native and federal appeals judge Sonia Sotomayor may well become the first Hispanic woman to serve on the Supreme Court, and it's a long, stressful road to the confirmation hearings. Will the Senate GOP filibuster? Probably not, but today Jeff Sessions of Alabama, the top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, indicated they'll be taking their time and making the decision carefully.
mSpot.com, a mobile music site, cleverly has chosen some tunes to accompany Sotomayor in the journey. Here's their top five:
Daughter of Justice: The Undecided
"We live in a world with so few answers, where is the justice that she seeks? Who will end this poverty?"
Courthouse: Chris Isaak
"People take their places, down at the courthouse / People stand in line to see you fall."Ladies' Choice: Zac Efron (from Hairspray)
"... shop around little darlin', I've got to be the Ladies' Choice, Ladies' Choice."
Judgement Day: Whitesnake
"With only love to light the way.. on the road to judgement day"
She's the One: The Ramones
"Yeah yeah she's the one.. When I see her on the street, you know she makes my life complete"
